As the Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon celebrates its 40th anniversary, 13 women (representing counties Dublin, Wicklow, Galway, Kildare and Sligo) who have taken part in the event every year since it began, came together to celebrate the milestone.

The 2022 Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon – a 10km leisurely stroll dash through Dublin City Centre – returns on Sunday June 5.

Dublin Lord Mayor Hazel Chu shot the gun on the 2020 VHI Women’s Virtual Mini-Marathon assisted by ‘Cara’, a running statue representing all the participants (even the very few who might prefer walking).

Over the next 10 days, until October 10, more than 17,000 women will do 10KM ‘their own way’ to raise funds for charities across Ireland.

Registration is still open here.

items from the VHI Women’s Mini Marathon gift bag; Kinvara will make a swap

Roisin Keown of Kinvara Skincare, writes:

Lots of twitter chat and disappointment about the cleaning product samples in the VHI Mini-marathon race bags this year.

We’re offering to swap anyone’s unwelcome washing tablets for something we think they’ll love – a discount off our Absolute Cleansing Oil.

We’ve just gone live on twitter with our offer, so we’re letting Broadsheeters know. Because we think the only cleaning products to get excited about are the ones that make you feel awesome and capable of anything – natch. Thanks Broadsheet!

In fairness.
